Ok! it is the first day of the New Year and I have things to accomplish…
Isn’t that the way we all start the New Year? All excited and RESOLUTE! I’m no different from any of you. I don’t actually make a list of resolutions, but it seems impossible to begin the year without some kind of reckoning, planning, hoping, reflecting, evaluating, dreaming….AHHHH… what do I want to accomplish this year? I often think about the Apostle Paul doing this same thing in the Scriptures:
“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
Philippians 3: 12-14
Don’t you just love that! Even Paul stopped to evaluate his life and ministry.
Imperfection is not the end cause there’s always tomorrow. For instance, I am writing this at 11:51 pm so by the time it gets posted it will be tomorrow already!
What are you planning for this new year? Any new dreams, projects? Or perhaps, like me, some things already begun need completion?
On this January 1, 2014 I wish for you many blessings! Blessings don’t always come with smiles but they are Blessings just the same!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and see me – (especially after such a long absence). I look forward to sharing many things with you in the upcoming year.
